Mayor Michael Bloomberg says New York City's bike-share program has been delayed until next spring.

He says the delay is due to software problems.

A partial rollout was supposed to begin in July.

The plan is to eventually have 10,000 bikes at 600 docking stations around the city.

People would pay a $95 annual fee to ride the blue, 3-speed bikes.     

Short-term users, including tourists, would be able to sign up too.     

The program is being sponsored by Citigroup.
